Keith,you can use either a 160/60-17
or 170/60-17 there is 10 mm diference
if you calculate the aspect ratio the 170 will provide a slightly larger contact patch on the side and less in the center when installed on a
5.0 inch wheel. Race rubber is usually more available in the 160 size.The 5.25or 5.50
inch wheel is more suitable for bigger bikes
and allows you to run 180/55-17

Does anyone make a 170 race tire?
